Reasons to love trees

Reasons to love trees

I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees. Pablo Neruda. Reasons to love trees

Joyce Meyer once said: “Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground — as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree”.
Undoubtedly, there are many reasons to love trees. First, they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen that we breathe. Second, they create a pleasant cool shade on a hot day, and are home to animals. And another reason — it is amazing how some of them look.
However, not all of the following plants are trees (wisteria — a vine, rhododendron — bush and baobab tree belongs to the family of cereals). Anyway, we can’t help admiring them because they are amazing, majestic and beautiful.

Bridge mystic symbols. Moon Bridge in Taipei, Taiwan is one of the most mystical bridges in the world

First of all, Bridge is the symbol of the transition, in particular through the water, which separates the earthly world from the world of the beyond. It replaces the ferryman (carrier), which is similar to the system of the world carries the souls. However, bridges not only connect, but also symbolize the situation of transition to a new form of existence. Such locutions as “burn all the bridges behind”, “seek ford” (tip of the bridge), “build golden bridges” (promise much) and ‘donkey bridge’ (crib, a leading question) quite clearly express associated with that word symbols.

Plants that never give up

Plants growing through concrete walls, stones and asphalt

Beautiful flowers growing through concrete walls, stones and asphalt. Plants that never give up

Plants that never give up
Undoubtedly, people have changed the world irrevocably, strongly surpassing wildlife. Unfortunately, every day more and more plants are disappearing from the cities, crushed by asphalt, buildings, and machinery. However, it’s amazing how fragile sprouts find tiny holes in a concrete, cracking the asphalt to grow and once again see the light. Never give up! Viva la Vita! Plants that make their way through the asphalt – the best illustration of this slogan. Meanwhile, for someone, such philosophical images, like statements, will be a good motivator if not to change life, but at least feel encouraged, while for others – a reminder of the value of wildlife. And someone can simply admire the colorful and touching series of images, which leave no one indifferent.

Emotional cats

Emotional cats. Even the smallest of the felines – perfection. (Leonardo da Vinci)

Emotional cats. Even the smallest of the felines – perfection. (Leonardo da Vinci)

Emotional cats

If you want to see your reflection – Look into the eyes of a cat.
If you want to see the universe – Look into the eyes of a cat.
If you want to see God – Look into the eyes of a cat.
If you want to see a cat – Look inside yourself …

Dogs and cats can exhibit a wide range of emotions, straightforward man. And the way they do it, makes most of us smile. One can only speculate about the reason for their surprise. The gray matter of cats have some resemblance to the human brain. While experts debate about the depth and range of emotions, they confirm that cats often have the same emotions as humans, such as happiness, excitement, playfulness, depression and anger. Any cat lover can confirm from their four-legged friends the presence of all these emotions, if not more. Be careful with angry cats. Unhappy cat can pee on your favorite chair, throw toilet paper roll and even break the dishes. Also, cats purr not only when satisfied, but when they feel pain or under stress.

“He, who does not love movies with Leonardo DiCaprio, has not seen movies with DiCaprio!” – Under this slogan I went to the movies “The Great Gatsby“.

I was extremely pleased with this movie, because everything in it is so beautiful, refined, every detail thought out to the smallest detail that watching on the big screen, only reinforces the positive impressions of this film. The finishing touch in a kaleidoscope of what is happening on the screen – incredible dresses and suits from the legendary Prada and Tiffany & Co.
